Man Kills Family, Takes Own Life

Approximately 2 a.m. Saturday morning, a man murdered his wife, two children, and then turned the gun on himself.  This happened in an apartment building in Erwin, Tennessee.

Police are indicating it was the result of a domestic relations incident.  The names of the family will be withheld until family can be notified.

Once again, Mr. La Pierre, this was not the act of a criminal, or a man declared mentally ill.  As it is with all too many deaths by gun, this was a family killed by another family member.

As “Gabby” Giffords said, “it’s time”.
